In 2017, in the ancient port of the city of Parion (western Turkey), a 2,000-year-old Roman baby bottle was found. The find has a single handle and a special spout-teat.

This type of vessel was used in ancient times to feed or water small children. Scientists often find such objects in children’s tombs, where they were placed as gifts for the “further way”. The volume of such a vessel was usually from 50 to 100 millilitres.

The vessel is made of fired clay.
